"It all started with a DREAM."
Attorney Phelps has always believed in giving back to the community that gave him so much. He dreamed of returning to his home county to open his own law firm. On October 18, 2013, The Law Office of D. Cole Phelps, PLLC was established in Plymouth, Washington County, North Carolina.
Our firm serves the following counties: Beaufort, Bertie, Chowan, Hyde, Martin, Pitt, Tyrrell, and Washington. On some occasions, we will travel to other counties.
Our practice areas include: traffic tickets, criminal matters (misdemeanors and felonies), expungements of criminal records, estate planning, establishing a small business, family law matters, debt collection, and real estate matters. Learn more about our practice areas by clicking on our practice areas tab above.
"I am persuaded that if most people saw what I see on a regular basis, they would want change." - Attorney Bryan Stevenson
Are you familiar with how the criminal justice system works? Are you aware of certain constitutional rights that you have? Have you been accused of committing a misdemeanor or felony in North Carolina?
Establishing a Small Business
Have you thought about forming a small business? Have you thought about forming a partnership, a limited liability corporation (LLC), a professional limited liability corporation (PLLC), or corporation? Do you know the requirements that you must comply with for your business to be legal under North Carolina law?
Since our location is close to the Outer Banks, we see a number of individuals who have been pulled over and given a traffic citation on their way to vacation. If that’s you, you should get an attorney immediately. If you simply pay off your ticket, it is the same as pleading guilty, and can have a disastrous long-term effect on your driving history and insurance rates.
